Ah, I see. Been there. Do you have the "logon path" etc options still in
smb.conf or are you using ldap attributes (like sambaProfilePath, 
sambaHomeDrive) for each individual account? I found the latter to be
more flexible in the long run (though a little harder to set up and 
administrate initially)
